If you suspect that you or a loved one are suffering from sleep apnea, you might be happy to learn that there have been new therapy modalities introduced in recent years that make treating the condition easier than ever.
One of the first things that our patients appreciate the most about sleep apnea treatment from our dentist office in Huntington is that we provide them with an alternative to treat the condition besides an old-fashioned – and often unhygienic – CPAP machine. Modern, safe, and clean dental appliance therapy is fast becoming the treatment of choice for a restful night’s sleep.
We have found while helping countless patients tackle their sleep apnea that the most critical part of the treatment plan is an accurate diagnosis.
Because there are several variables involved in treating the condition, having an accurate diagnosis is paramount. At Smile Huntington, we take a multi-pronged approach to your unique diagnosis and treatment plan.
First, we will spend time with you in our office to conduct an examination and gather information about your exact symptoms. Next, we provide you with a take-home diagnostic kit to test your sleeping patterns.
Once this kit is returned to our Huntington dentist office, we will work in tandem with a sleep study center to analyze the results and develop a treatment plan that’s customized just for you.
Studies show that an at-home sleep study is often more accurate since patients can sleep in their environment. But another thing that patients appreciate is that our office has convenient Thursday evening and Saturday appointments available.
This not only means that you can benefit from not having to spend a night in a sleep clinic for an overnight study, but that you can return the test kit to our office when it’s most convenient for your schedule!
